The win selection in the Group One Grand Prix De Paris on Wednesday is the Irish Derby winner Hurricane Lane, who if coming out of the Irish Classic event in good spirits may just be too good to beat.
The three year old son of Frankel made his debut last term at Newmarket in a decent Novice Stakes over a mile on heavy ground and he ran out an easy winner.
Saved for this season, he was stepped up in trip on seasonal debut in a good Conditions Stakes over 10f and again ran out a good winner, doing his best work near the finish.
The form of that race does not look bad with the second since placing in a better event and the fourth placed runner since winning.
He also backed up this form line last time out when landing the Group Two Dante Stakes at York, staying the 10.5 furlongs well.
He saw off smart runners Megallan and High Definition that day and was sure to head to the Derby having plenty of stamina in his family.
The colt managed to finish a good third in the Classic event behind Adayar and Mojo Star, with the form of those runners working out and he also lost two shoes in running that day.
With plenty of scope for improvement from that run he was last seen in the Irish Derby at The Curragh we he chased down Lone Eagle late in the day to get up on the line.
This term he has proved it time and time again just how good he is and he looks the one to beat.
